Has anybody else tried them? There really good! You don't have to clean them or trim them, just put them in a pot and cook them! Cheap too!

I tend to not like Trader Joe's prepackaged way of selling produce. I like to look over each individual item I buy and choose the ones I want specifically. Less packaging that way too.

What sort of greens are they? "Southern Style" brings to mind ham hocks and butter and bacon and such - I'm assuming these are just a bunch of greens? They sound good and easy though!! Easy is always nice.

Me too, that's why I was so surprised! It's mostly young collards with some turnip and mustard greens mixed in. Maybe some kale. Its a really big bag. They are always very fresh and I cook them the same day. I fry up some onions, put in a chopped tomato, the greens, and season with black pepper, braggs and a little liquid smoke. Eat em with tobasco!

I was thinking about this. I dont see why they have to use the plastic trays for all there vegetables even if they want to prepackaged them. Why cant they just use a bag?

I think Trader Joe's would be a total produce graveyard if it weren't for the plastic. Not that I agree with all the unnecessary packaging, but my guess is that it helps it from going bad even quicker than it already does. I am not familiar with their methods of acquiring produce, but whatever it is, it must take them too long. Nothing I buy from them ever lasts much past 2-3 days, even in the fridge, before getting fuzzy. Maybe it's just the one around here, though...

My TJ's carries Greens with Envy in the frozen section. It has broccoli, edamame, spinach, green beans and asparagus. I love it. Although it's mostly edamame (which I thought I didn't like, but I do!) with some of the other veggies thrown in for good measure.
